SS7mm,

I think Richard was ready for his rifle before this past falls deer season, damn slow gunsmiths anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

Anyway, he will probably shoot the thing better then I can anyway so it needs to go to its new home up north. I may get hunted down and beatin if the rifle were to head out to Washington before it is shipped North!!!

I would agree, the 6.5mm Allen Mag will be getting built here soon. Even in the less then comfortable conditions, once those bullets started landing in a group at 1006 yards, the smile was hard to wipe off my wifes face.

I have tried to talk her into my 6.5 Allen Xpress based on the 300 Dakota case but she will have none of that, she wants full tilt power, see why I married her [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

Good Shooting!!

Yes, I would agree, I was very proud of both my wife's and my dads shooting on these two very windy days. They did the rifle builder and bullet maker proud!!

I will admit most of this performance in the wind is due to the bullet. Richard makes the best wind eaters I have ever used, one of the many reasons they are the only bullet I use in my Allen Magnums. Sounds like a promo speel but its flat out the trueth no matter how you look at it.

Re: New Allen Magnum and APS rifle design finally ready to test....

Gnslngr,

Please understand that there are two(2) Allen Magnum rounds that shoot a 270 caliber bullet. The original is the "270 Allen Magnum" which is based on a full length 300 RUM case with the shoulder angle increased and body taper reduced.

The other round is called the "277 Allen Mag". This wildcat is based on the full length 338 Lapua case necked down to 270 with increased shoulder angle and much less body taper. The "277 AM" was designed at the request of my good friend Richard Graves for the ultimate 270 cal round.

Performance is similiar with both rounds but case quality and strength are significantly better with the Lapua based round. That said, it is also significantly more involved to form cases for as well so its kind of a trade off.

If your looking for a 270 Allen Mag or 277 Allen Mag rifle you can send me an e-mail at the below address. If your looking to try some of Richards Wildcat Bullets send him an e-mail at wildcatbullets@hotmail.com

The bullets tested in this rifle were the Wildcat 169.5 gr ULD RBBTs. A new Wildcat Bullet will be here soon which was designed speicifically for the 277 Allen Magnum but will also work equally well in the 270 Allen Mag and other large capacity 270 wildcats. This new bullet will be the 185 gr ULD RBBT.

Good Shooting!!

Hey Kirby. Remind me, again, of what .30 caliber, or larger, Allen Magnums are out there.
